Johnson’s Love by Dwight Yoakam Guitar Chords


Dwight Yoakam – Johnson’s Love (Acoustic)

This song has a very distinctive picking style, which I have tabbed out at the
end of the lyrics. Use it as a guide, because I haven’t got it exactly the same
as the recording, but it works well enough!

INTRO

Verse 1

——–

N/C C
She had left him lost and broken,
Like no other had before.
Now his heart was just a token,
Of the pain it had endured.
And his memories were clouded,
With all the hurtful things she’d said.
Yes, for all intent and purpose,
He might just as well been dead.

Chorus

——-

And some people claim they still hear him call her name.
Hey, hey Maureen…swear they hear it just that plain.
Deep in the night, lord and sometimes right at dawn.
You see his body died some years ago but around here,
Mr Johnson’s love lives on.

Verse 2

——–

He seemed far away and distant,
With that cold and silent stare.
Never moving never speaking,
And just barely breathing air.
No-one really knew the reason,
And who can judge her right or wrong.
The only true and solemn fact is…
The man we’d known was all but gone.

CHORUS

Verse 3

——–

Sissy Thompson said she’d seen him,
Late that night on Shelby Road.
About a mile from there they found him,
It seems he’d died out in the snow.
I heard the preacher at the service,
Say from love he’s finally free.
But I say love it knows no seasons,
It haunts the soul eternally.

CHORUS

Yeah, his body died some years ago but around here,
Mr Johnson’s love lives on.
